The architecture field has always adapted to current trends. From artistic movements to new construction methods or materials, our profession is always changing with any tendency that has appeared. Today, we are experiencing the rise of new technological advancements that will (if it is already) or could reshape how we design and build architecture. Although,
A group of researchers at MIT has dedicated themselves to the study and development of new materials and their behavior. The program called Self-Assembly Lab specializes in the invention of self-assembly and programmable material technologies aimed to transform construction, manufacturing, and infrastructure in the built environment.
Revit, as a very complex BIM software, can be slow sometimes. But just like AutoCAD, every tool in Revit has its own keyboard shortcut. This gives the opportunity to increase your efficiency and productivity by getting tasks accomplished faster than by conventional “mouse clicking”. Here are some shortcuts by category: Annotate DI – ALIGNED DIMENSION / Creates
Concrete has been one of the most used construction material since a long (long) time ago. Its properties and attributes have allowed it to be part of our architectural designs. Despite all its characteristics, concrete has limitations. To obtain the final product, a rigid and rectilinear mould is needed to repeat a pattern. But what
Architects use two-dimensional and three-dimensional representations for communication purposes. We could sketch or make a quick doodle that only the creator understands to physically provide an insight of what the design could be. Or, we use BIM software that gives the opportunity to model our ideas and provide a similar recreation of our mind. But,
